I think I'll open an --integration branch, into which I'll cherry-pick
the features that are somewhat approved by the Guile developers. So
far, from what I've heard from Marius, getopt-long would be a good
candidate for that.

Also, I think there should be somewhat detailed ChangeLog entries for
the changes, so judging the changes is easier.

If you have any questions wrt. to using Arch/the archive, don't
hesitate to ask me (not that I'm an Arch guru yet, but at least I got
some experience).
